How To Prepare Your Voice For Singing

How To Prepare Your Voice For SingingToday I want to tackle the topic of how to prepare your voice for singing. I find this to be a pretty straightforward issue, but it is good to outline some of the things you can do to help prepare your voice for singing. Below are a few things that I have found especially helpful in prepping my voice to sing.

1) I always, always, always start with a vocal warm up routine. In my mind, this is a non-negotiable step that must be taken by anyone before they sing. Take the time to gently warm up your voice through your normal warm up routine. If you do not already have a vocal warm up routine, view the post I made about vocal warm ups (link is above).

2) Start hydrating yourself a few days before you have to sing. This is especially relevant to me and many other singers now that allergy season is in full bloom. It is very important that you drink plenty of water before, during and after you sing in order to keep enough moisture in your vocal cords. Moisture is the lifeblood of your vocal cords, so make sure that you are always hydrating them with good ole’ H2O.

3) Depending on the situation, I sometimes do some light physical exercises before I sing. If my body is stiff, sore or still tired from the previous day, I will do some dynamic stretches, push ups, sit ups and pull ups. Take notice that I don’t do an entire hardcore workout – I just workout enough to get blood flowing throughout my body (which includes my vocal cords). I’ve also found that working out also relieves me of some of my nerves and tension, so I am incorporating that into my routine more on a regular basis.

4) Finally, I think this is the most important thing you can do in the quest to learn how to prepare your voice for singing: practice. Practice what you are going to sing over and over again. Nail down the tough parts. Be confident in what you will be singing. This goes the longest way in prepping your voice for singing. When you have confidence to sing, the first three things are easy to do and will only bolster your confidence. So practice, practice, practice!

I hope these tips are beneficial to you in some way. What about you? How do you prepare your voice for singing?

    Hi! Thank you so much for the tips! I really need them for tomorrow, I have to sing a couplet solo in front of 250 people. It would be extremely awkward if I sing a valse chord or two. I have practiced allot and I know the lines I feel them/hear them in my head like all the time. Still I am extremely nervous, when I last practiced in front of my class I sang almost every chord wrong, I want to prove them that I really CAN sing.
